Justin Houston played very well for the Indianapolis Colts in 2019, and they have two young players that are growing in Ben Banogu and Kemoko Turay. It never hurts to add more talent on the defensive line. Kenny Willekes brings a tough brand of football to the table. He can attack gaps, hold the edge in the run game, and brings good hand usage as a pass rusher.
Adding another tight end alongside Jack Doyle is important, and it will benefit Philip Rivers as well. Josiah Deguara is a sleeper to watch in this class. He brings intensity and technique as a blocker, along with an ability to work up the seam and across the field in the passing game. Deguara could contribute early on in Indy.
Marlon Mack’s contract will be up after the 2020 season, so finding another back would be smart. Lamical Perine would fit very well with the Colts. Perine is a tough runner between the tackles, showing good contact balance. When he gets into space, Perine shows good burst and solid lateral agility. He’d get some reps on early downs in the offense.
Getting another receiver is imperative to push the veterans in camp, but the value wasn’t great on day three until this point. John Hightower will bring some much-needed speed to the table, and can be a dangerous slot receiver in that regard. Think of him playing a Travis Benjamin-like role for the Colts.
